Where? The Boundary. East. Just off Liverpool St. Why? Roof terrace that’ll knock your socks off. Exceptionally good food, great drinks, fairy lights, fragrant herb garden. Book dinner in the restaurant and start with drinks and nibbles outside. You’ll love it. Also bookable for private events, which would be rather dreamy. Wear? Smart casual. Website. (Priority is given to hotel guests and dinner bookings, so worth giving them a buzz.)
